Manchester United will be feeling a lot better following their convincing 4-0 win over Queens Park Rangers in their last Premier League game.

As they are not involved in any European competitions this season, the Red Devils will also be well rested ahead of this game.

The Red Devils were every impressive against QPR, with their new signings Angel di Maria and Ander Herrera along with Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata recording their names on the scoresheet.

However, Leicester City, who have been pretty impressive in the Premier League this season, will probably put in a better fight than QPR when they face Manchester United on Sunday.

This is why Red Devils boss van Gaal, who has endured a horrible start to this season, says that he has thoroughly analysed the Eagles ahead of this fixture.

"I have analysed them three times," he said. "I prepare all my matches very thoroughly. I know all about the games they have played already and the game they lost to a minor team [Shrewsbury] in the Capital One Cup."

"I know everything about the team, about individuals, substitutes, what the atmosphere will be like in the stadium, how they take freekicks, everything."

Meanwhile, Leicester City will be brimming with confidence following their win against Stoke City at the Britannia stadium in their last Premier League fixture.

The Eagles, despite playing well, in their opening three Premier League games against Everton, Chelsea and Arsenal, had failed to record a win due to the quality of the opponents.

However, they finally succeeded in proving themselves against Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium, and they will be taking a lot of heart from this result considering the Potters home record in the Premier League last season.

Still, Leicester boss Nigel Pearson admits that Leicester City will not have it even remotely easy against Manchester United.

"Manchester United have been the most dominant domestic club. They are a world brand and have made their recruitment intensions quite clear," Pearson told the Express.

"United look like they have a swagger back, they have added quality. Whenever there is a change in manager you can have people who have a short-term impact."

"When you have someone in charge for as long as Sir Alex Ferguson the transition period will never be easy. They have been a huge presence within the English game for a long time. I'm sure they will reignite that at some point."

Team News: Leicester City: The Foxes, on the other hand, will be without Matthew Upson and Matty James due to a foot and a shin injury respectively.

Nick Powell, who is on-loan from Manchester united, will also not feature in this game as he is ineligible to face his parent club.

Manchester United: Long term absentees including Sam Johnstone (elbow), Phil Jones (hamstring), Ashley Young (groin), Michael Carrick (ankle), Jesse Lingard (knee), Marouane Fellaini (ankle) will again be missing this game as they are still recovering from their respective injuries.

The good news for Manchester United is that their defender Chris Smalling has recovered from this his groin injury and will be available for this game.

Expected lineups: Leicester City: Kasper Schmeichel; Ritchie De Laet, Wes Morgan, Liam Moore, Paul Konchesky; Riyad Mahrez, Dean Hammond, Andy King, Jeff Schlupp; Leonardo Ulloa, David Nugent.

Manchester United: David De Gea; Rafael, Jonny Evans, Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw; Ander Herrera, Daley Blind, Angel Di María; Juan Mata; Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney.
